to status quo versus change. four years ago broke -- barack obama was the change guy. how does that boil down in the next two weeks? molly? >> they just keep having the argument. gwen: really? oh, good. oh, joy. >> anything new at this stage? that's dangerous. >> i think you see romney focusing more on the personal and likability. he passed the debate test. he proved himself a viable alternative and now it comes down to this likable factor. every pom i've ever seen, obama has this, you may not approve of him but like him. i don't think mitt romney has that. >> i think it comes down to voter enthusiasm and getting your people out. gwen: and sometimes scaring them. look what might happen? >> exactly. >> well, thank you. still counting down. we'll keep chath away on line on the "washington week" webcast extra. you can find than at pbs.org/washingtonweek. before we go tonight, we'd like to send our condolences to the family of former senator, presidential candidate, and humanitarian george mcgovern. he passed away this week at age 90. keep up with daily developments in this too close to gues

elizabeth warren. if it wasn't a presidential year i think brown would be favored but i think warn -- warren is probably going to win in the end. that's because of barack obama. states like nevada be a good example gwen: you say nevada? >> you're right. i'm going to get angry letters now. but i think it's a state where the votes are going to track very similar to the lines of the presidential race. gwen: how about montana? >> you're not seeing the opposite. there isn't a lot of romney coattail effect out of these states. a lot are really either competitive or leaning toward obama. it would not shock me if the race is decided by less than 1,000 votes. that's how tight it is. >> or how many people! [laughter] >> and indiana this week, gloria? that wasn't such a tight race and all of a sudden it is again the >> well, of course. because of remarks made my mourdock, who spoke about rape again and it sort of echoed todd achein, -- aikin, even though it was very different because he is opposed to any exceptions for a abortion. that is a difference from mitt romney's position, we should say. but wha
have been building jobs those first two years instead of passing the obama care act. with regard to even the stimulus the way he structured that, obviously we have issues with the structure. but if you look at where that money was invested and not going into needed infrastructure projects that he's talking about now. $1 trillion was spent in that and if infrastructure he cease as a problem he could have invested more at that point. if you look across the board it's a matter of priorities and he didn't make a priority of changing the tone in washington or creating jobs at that point when he really could. and that's something that we need to work to move on into the future. host: our last call for chairman of the republican party in mecklenburg north carolina. caller: i want to say that i'm for romney this year. i gave obama a chance four years, and it's gotten worse. i'm not racist. this hasn't got anything to do with parties or race. it's got something to do with country. host: you voted for the president from 2008 you're not in 2012, what is the difference in then and now? calle
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
is the third thing things will get much better over the next four years. that's a case that president obama has not made that effectively or sometimes at all. the other guy is really bad. we're in the middle here. let us finish the job but there is no overwhelming case, if you elect me again boy things will get much better. brian williams asked him about it on rock center. look at his luke warm answer here. >> would you be prepared to enact truly major changes. >> the plan that i put forward with education with making college and job training accessible to people, to insure that our manufacturing base is right back here in the united states opposed to overseas. the work we've done in increasing oil and gas production and clean energy, putting americans back to work, including veteran veterans rebuilding roads and bridges. those are all designed to make sure we have more rebust future that that was not that good of an answer. hey look, here are these numbers. this is why it's really important. when asked about the next four terms. the first team like the second, only 4% want that. that's a horri
president obama with a late endorsement thursday. he is saying though he found the past four years to be, quote, disappointing, the storm's devastation brought the stakes of tuesday's election, he says, into sharp relief. he then tweeted this, quote. this november vote for a president who will lead on climate change. back to the october jobs status these reports have become the focal point since president obama took office and an important monthly mile marker for judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided ove
in achievements and four years ago, four years ago, candidate obama promise tod do soy much, but he's fallen so very short. i mean, you recall. he promised to be a post partisan president he's been most partisan and dividing and attacking and blaming. he was going to focus on creating jobs and instead he focused on obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. and then he said he would bringlet unemployment rate down to 5.25 percent and we learned on friday 7.9 nine million jobs short of what he promised and unemployment. and unemployment today is higher than when barak obama took office and by the way, he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare. he did not. rather he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. the list goes on. and he said he would low are health prem yups by $2000. and instead went up $3000 a family. and average american family pays $2000 more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. and i mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most impor
by 2.3. and democrat mark wa of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%, actually because the polls are closing, the latest poll, by the ohio newspapers, showing the race a dead heat. and that is certainly what i feel. i also feel like momentum is on our side. i have been at 6 rallies over the last week and at about a dozen centers around the state and energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year and it is interesting to watch. but, we were down 5 to 10 points before the debates and afte
to office. it's going to happen. if he gets four more years, brk b barack obama will ruin this country and white people will be in concentration camps. if you don't believe that, people sadly mistaken. >> reporter: and his collusion to avoid this supposed impending storm is an all-white south. where all blacks, hispanics and jews are banned. given some place else, he says, to live in america. i want to make sure i understand you. if the goal is white accept aretism, separating the races, the only way to separate the races is using violence. you're not going to be able to just say nicely, please leave. >> if they will peacefully go, then yeah. but if they won't, that's the only way is through violence, is through making them go, that's it. >> reporter: and you'd be willing to be apart of that? it's a race war you're talking about, essentially. >> very much so. >> reporter: his hero and predecessor was a convicted murderer. and former head of the mississippi white knights. what do you think about sam bowers? >> greatest klansman that ever lived. >> reporter: well, he was accused and conv
assault weapons. he was pro-choice an passed obama-care years before obama did. >> it wasn't obama-care, it was massachusetts care. what is good for massachusetts is necessarily good for america. >> he was telling everybody it was good for america when he signed it. >> he said it was good more massachusetts. >> he said thank you, president obama or adopting my plan as your plan. he was a liberal in massachusetts. a conservative in the primary, now he's a moderate. he's a chameleon, not a candidate. megyn: a new ad by two powerful unions takes a hard shot at governor romney calling him an economic traitor based on his work at bain capital. you are looking live at the statue of liberty. the southern tip of manhattan could be under 11 feet of water. >> conditions are deteriorating rapidly and the window for you getting out safely is closing. it is going to be bad. the forecasts are reasonably accurate. this close to when we are predicting something and it's going to be very high winds and a lot of road closures. you know mass transit is not working. driving when you have big gusts lik
in achievements. and four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he's fallen so very short. he promised to be a post partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. and instead, he focused on obama care, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learn that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. he promised that he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather, he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his obama care. he said he was going to lower health insurance premiums for the average family by $2,500 a year by now. and actually, they are now $3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now
years. >> well, i think there's some truth to that. immediately after obama was elected, we saw two of the largest hate websites in the country crash. >> reporter: potok told us that by the late '80s, the klan dwindled to a few hundred. they now number closer to 6,000. >> white power! >> reporter: he believes they can be very dangerous. >> it's dangerous, not so much because a whole bunch of klansmen get together in a room and plan to murder 1,000 people with a bomb so, you know, it's the lone wolf characters that get frustrated with their leaders that break away, you know, one day, walk out of their house and start shooting. >> reporter: with that in mind, at a gas station outside of tupelo, the grand dragon appears. he is also known as steven howard, 31 years old, he says he's an iraq war veteran. he comes with a loaded pistol on his hip and tells me he's got serious ptsd. we agree to follow him to a remote location, where cell phone service is spotty. next to a trailer by the woods. they ask us not to photograph howard's 11-year-old daughter, but she is there, as is his wife, nic
we can do, to put the past four years behind us and start building a new future. >> and barack obama looking presidential yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he also got a decent bit of economic news with the jobs report, came in about 46,000 over what the consensus forecast had been. and so he's casting this as we're slowly going in the right direction. we're on the right track. we've been through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied
because barack obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are saying they feel good about the economy even though they don't trust the president. >> i see these job numbers as basically being status quo. they can affect things in a big way. the decimal point kicked up one point but the actual job number was a little higher than forecasted. mitt romney has won the economy,
of the united states. it's true. i thought we already did go with president obama four years ago and we did get screwed. it has hurt the last four years. it's been bad. we have didn't like it at all. i don't understand the point of the add. she has the same last name as obama's mom, though. bizarre. >> greg: i didn't notice that. there is a conspiracy waiting to happen. what do you think, michelle, our great first lady thinks of this? >> dana: a lot of ads they have to say i'm barack obama and i approve this message. who approved this message? valerie jarret, anita dunn? who is in the white house? stephanie cutter? who thought this was a great idea. i'll tell you who. two of the top guys at obama campaign tweeting this out like crazy, coolest thing they heard. ib stead, one of the thing it talks about is the gender gap with women on the campaign. there is also one with men. in particular, men who are fathers. a lot of them are fathers of daughters whose worst nightmare is thinking about this. it just is desperation and tacky. >> andrea: he is a father to two daughters. weird. >> greg: i bet he
the last four years. i know that the obama folks are chanting four more years. our chant is five more days. >> reporter: at a rally in virginia a campaign cheer was also a reminder of how little time is left. >> five more days. five more days. >> reporter: before the hurricane romney had momentum. the race was in a dead heat and he was tied or within striking distance. but the storm knocked him off the front pages at a crucial time in the race. on monday and tuesday he canceled rallies. back on the trail yesterday in florida he tend down his criticism of the president. today in virginia romney was back on his economic message with sharp attacks on president obama. >> his campaign and his address is about attacking. we actually have a plan to get this economy going top we're going to put it in place to help the american people. >> reporter: now before this storm romney had the lead over the president on questions of which candidate would be a stronger leader and which would be better in working with democrats and republicans. if he loses ground on either one of those questions that could be
growth. the obama team has said the same thing, that they can come up with 12 million in four years. the math works out the same. the economy has to grow at 4%. do you see it happening? i don't so it happening. >> i don't think you quite would need all the way up to 4% growth. let me disagree with you a little there. you've seen over the last 2 1/2 years a rate of job creation that's around 2 million a year. so you would just need 3 million a year. and i think if you got up to 3%, 3.5%, you could see that. over the next 6 to 12 months is your weakest spot in that because, as diane said, you've got china, europe, you've got -- we're getting no extra boost from around the world. and we've got all of these issues of the fiscal cliff, which we've talked about on this show before, ali. if you can get past that first six to 12 months, then you would be a little more confident. >> can i weigh in a little bit on -- i am actually a little more optimistic than austan regardless of who is president. it matters if we get credible deficit reduction out there. what's important is the housing mark
with a lead all year. it's not just that obama is up there, but it's a state where it's been stable and consistent in the polling. i think it might be more in play because i don't think they are conceding ohio. they need a better plan b. >> is there a famous circumstance in which all the polls all yearlong point in one direction and a partisan poll correctly predicted the results? >> that poll is almost always going to be wrong. especially when there's a consensus of 20 polls. maybe in a house race where the public polls aren't as good. but the public polling is pretty good. we know what the party bases are and where they live. this is a state that teases republicans where they can get up to 49% pretty easily, but it's hard to get to 50%. unless because of the hurricane and where the power outages might be, that could affect thi things. but apart from that, it's a sign of a campaign that doesn't like the electoral map very much. >> what about the montra we have been hearing on the right. we were hearing the idea that mr. romney has momentum heading into the election day. you shouldn
i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> this is "world news." tonight, breaking news. cheers erupt in lower manhattan as the power flickers back on. and under a lot of pressure, new york decides late today to pull the plug on the famous new york marathon this weekend. >>> running on empty. endless lines for gasoline. >> seven hours here already. >> people running out of gas. waiting for a few gallons to take home. waiting for the cold night ahead. we get answers. >>> the challenger. four days to go. the second of our personal portraits of the men who want your vote. >>> and, noah's ark? how would you evacuate a 250-pound walrus? how about a giant octopus? we're there, as trainers decide what to do when their aquarium flooded and 12,000 creatures are inside. >>> good evening on this friday night. as we come on the air, there is late news about the devastating storm and one of the biggest athletic events in the world. under enormous pressure, new york has canceled the iconic new y

at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many are trapped if their homes. the national guard rescuest ahead, and, also, there were buses coming out of harlem and people waiting four hours and never getting a bus and the new york stock exchange re-opened today and they all back to work but it could take time to get trading back to normal. check in with the markets a
years, you see all that blue. this is the area most critical to president obama. he has to win the state of virginia. again, when you call to these communities, they think they'll get it fixed in time for tuesday. >> john, when you talked to the two campaigns, i know this is -- they don't want to talk about it, but does either see this benefiting them? >> it's fascinating that they give you the same answer and how rare is it that they will do that on a question? they say we're not going to talk about that. it would be insensitive and it would be wrong. but then privately, they say for the most part, think they it's a wash, especially if the power comes back on. the obama campaign is worried about the early voting. the ads have not come out and they have not been as active. so they're still slugging it out on the airwaves. privately, both campaigns think if there's any benefit, it will be a benefit to the president of the united states. but both sides think if it is, it's slight. >> thank you very much, john king. coming up next, we're going to show you the pictures and tell you about the

the math, and from barack obama they want to see, hey, you couldn't do this for the last two years, you did say it was because of congress, but what happens if you end up with the exact same congressional makeup? what will you do differently now that you didn't do before? >> miguel, you're in colorado, where the unemployment rate is higher than the national average, 8%. you were just in my home state of iowa where the rate is 5.2%. on paper people in iowa should be less worried about unemployment than people in colorado. but you know what, all across these swing states, people are worried about opportunity, they're worried about future jobs and the quality of jobs they have right now. >> oh, absolutely. the big thing, sort of what ali was talking about, politics are emotional. what people can't see is what the future is. they can't see where barack obama's going to take the nation, they can't see exactly where mitt romney's going to take the nation. we've talked to voters across the battleground states. and in some places there's not so much undecided as they have a soft preference for one
will be around for another four years. >> reporter: but if these unscientific polls skew toward obama analysts will tell you because he's been a pop culture figure since his first campaign. and the challenger mitt romney is a less transformational figure. i'm not stunned that these pop culture measures might edge towards obama, but again, it doesn't really mean anything except that. but it's a fun measure. and as fatigue sets in here in the final days of a very long campaign, maybe a little fun is exactly what american voters need. jonathan man, cnn. >> i will buy that, jonathan mann. states of emergency declared all along the east coast. we're looking at what could be a unprecedented storm just days before election day.

for the republican presidential candidate for 44 years until 2008, when it went for barack obama. he won by racking up huge margins in the virginia suburbs of washington, d.c. and among african americans. mitt romney has spent $65 million and a lot of time trying to woo virginia back, and even some obama advisers are saying it looks like romney may pull off a win here. >> we're going to win virginia. you know that? we're going to win. >> and ohio has been critical. in fact, necessary to every republican presidential win. but president obama has held on to a small lead there. his strategists are buoyed by polling that shows a 2-1 lead for the president among early voters. the president staged the finale of his 48-hour marathon campaign in ohio. >> i am glad to be back in cleveland, ohio. >> despite the money, the trips, and the speeches, ohio and virginia remain stubbornly in the toss-up category. a newly released cnn poll shows the president with a 50 to 46 lead in ohio. former ohio governor ted strickland and virginia governor bob mcdonnell up next. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty m
to obama, but i think among the sliver of people who, you know, probably voted for obama four years ago and are not sure now, i think this could help. >> how many do you think there are? >> standing next to chris christie helps. >> -- in cincinnati or waukesha, wisconsin -- >> it helps with the media though. it helps with our point of view. let me ask you, everybody goes by the polls and they tend to be 47/47 which means six people haven't made up their mind. i'm asking you as a pro. aren't there a lot of people who are more like the group you described, voted for obama once, worried about him this time, may go with the other guy if he has a good night. can they come back from the first debate saying i'm back where i was? how many of them are there potentially? >> i think there are some out there. but the question is how many of them have early voted? the proliferation of early voting, there were some voting after the first debate, between the second and third debate. i think there are some of those who are not sure and have been looking for a sign. if you haven't voted sort of right aw
and they're not entirely sure another four years with obama is going to fix it, but they're equally unsure four years of changing track with mitt romney is going to change it. so you have people, like me, like you, like just about everybody, caught in the middle. what is the right way to go. >> all right. miguel in denver, we'll continue to watch your travels. really great work this week, miguel. and also, ali velshi, in a few hours, we'll up up on "your money." nice to see you, ali. >>> up next, china, a dominant topic at this week's presidential debate. we'll tell you whether china is more threat or opportunity. but first, there are more than 1.3 billion people in china. that makes up what percentage of the world's population? is it a, 9%, b, 19%, c, 29%, no googling. i'm going to tell you on the other side of the break. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh!

avalon is in virginia, a state that president obama won four years ago, and a state mitt romney would really love to have in his column ten days from now. everybody would love to have every single state in their column. so why is virginia -- first of all, how are you doing? why is virginia so important to the election? >> reporter: i'm doing great, we'll talk to students at washington university in just a bit. virginia is one of the three big swing states, florida, virginia, ohio, the path of the battleground bus that we have been on. virginia is fascinating, because president obama was the first democrat to win it since lyndon johnson, in 1964. the population is growing, more diverse now. now the population growth, frankly well to the north of virginia was to his benefit in 2008. right now, the economy here in virginia, pretty good compared to the rest of the country, 8% national. so this is a place democrats hope they could win again. it is tight, they have a very competitive senate race. every vote counts. it is really about the ground game. >> they were going after every single de
. the president won the state in 2008 but now the republican candidate hopes to turn it red again. >> the obama folks are chanting four more years, but our chant is this, five more days. five more days. >> reporter: the latest poll in virginia shows it's to close to call. obama leads 49-47%. with in the margin of error. >> hello wisconsin. >> reporter: the president started his three state swing in paul ryan's home state where he asked for more time to finish the job. >> as long as there is a single american who wants a job but can't find one our work isn't done. >> reporter: rounding out his day campaign stops in nevada and colorado. it combined 15elect, roal votes. the running mates also out in full force. four campaign events between the two. in iowa, the vice president accused the romney campaign of flip-flopping. > >> they are shameless. >> reporter: in colorado paul ryan argued the obama policies aren't working >> reporter: over the next several days you can expect to see more events just like those in the remaining swing states. also though don't be surprise fire department the campai
thing. he responded well and president obama owes him a very big thank you. >> last year. he took one when he said get the had hell off the beach. this time he didn't get so much flack. >> this thing, this irene thing were seen as a lighter storm. i would agree with judy that christie was focusing on being go governor of the state. there is a phrase, when a republican endorses democrats, they get strange new respect from the "washington post". >> and alan, there is strange new respect. >> that was a flak jacket that we saw. >> he was caring about the people of the state. the president was on the phone with him three times a day. it's not praising a commander in chief who is in charge of is a storm ultimately. >> i actually totally agree except for the fact that maureen dowd jumped to the conclusion he has moved left? that is the problem with the media. you cannot define critz at this is doing the right thing and evil before that simply by doing his job. we need to put pressure on the media to put them on be more substantive. >> jon: the advice the that it he made and christie is arm t
the difference. here's the second point. if it took president obama four years to come up with this lame idea of a secretary of business, i certainly don't want to give him four more years to come up with another lame idea while this economy is still running on fumes. that's the bottom line. bill: he says instead of nine different departments dealing with things like giving loans to small business administration or helping companies with exports you put them all in one department. you're kicking that to the curb. and unemployment rate of 7.9%. does this administration have an effective plan to get america on track, if president obama is awarded a second term on tuesday night? >> the answer is no and i have spent the last two months talking to over 2000 businesses owners and also saying no, president obama does not have a plan. now let's talk about these nine departments. see, here's how this administration works. if president obama gets reelected and install as secretary of business, he is not going to shut down the other nine departments. he will add to the bureaucracy. because see his plan,
romney this year, 19 from obama. >> president obama wasn't able to come as planned because of the storm. >> reporter: do you think that hurts his cause in ohio? >> absolutely not. i think more people respect him for doing what what the president is supposed to do. >> reporter: the drizzle wasn't enough to keem elaine from going door to door on obama's behalf tonight. >> hi, how are you? >> reporter: hello. a few miles away brothers and roger did the same for romney. >> i don't think personally that after four years of watching this president that it should change anybody's mind in four days on four years of failure. >> very difficult. >> reporter: here's one republican mind that seems to have changed at least for now, governor christie. >> i want to thank the president personally for his personal attention. >> reporter: president obama will be with christie in new jersey tomorrow and sandy and canada. what is means to the election decembstined to be a november surprise. >> thank you, bill. and thank you for watching abc news, "gma" will have the lates
. >> there is no question in my view, we can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chance is five more day, five more days, that's our chant. let me ask you a question. can anybody name our current secretary of commerce? you know why? we don't have one. it's been vacant four months and the president hasn't proposed to put somebody in the job. we need another president! >> in the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all of his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after the past four years. and he's offering them up as change. >> here's my last question: are you ready for this? are you fired up? are you ready to go! five day, get to work! >> the romney/ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is. the president's been left just to attack. for him to think or say that -- that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he is the president of t
president obama this time than i was four years ago. >> so there you have it, at least in some part former president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself said elections are about the future. they're about whand of future you see. what he articulates is something i think is a bonafide feeling among the democratic race. we are enthusiastic about it. you can feel it. >> he chose an interesting way to articulate it. i am far more enthusiastic about president about obama thavenlt a few years. >> anne it this endorsement by mayor bloomberg surprised everyone yesterday, citin
're going to repeal obama care. by july this year, the house had voted 32 times to repeal obama care, but the senate was democratic. it's most lickly to be democratic no matter who the president is next time around. some of these savings may not happen. >> well, we have to get some bipartisan cooperation and i think should the democrats control the senate or if they don't, what governor romney will do is what he did in massachusetts. say what's your plan, which is reasonable, and say put your plan on the table. pass a budget for the first time in three years and then we'll sit down and you know, we'll negotiate. >> i wanted to ask you about something today in the "washington post." the nation's top bond investor. he said america needs to cut $1.6 trillion a year. four times the so-called grand bargain. i spoke to him about it today. i said bill, is ha really what you meant? he said romney's plan is a plan to reduce the deficit from some undisclosed plan of tax reform. i believe under both candidates, we will see trillion dollar deficits. either by the sale of treasuries from reserve
of what four more years of obama will look like? earlier this week the president released a pamp let. what to expect if he were to win. he touts economic patriotism. that is a phrase he's used on the campaign trail for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our government. there was a democrat named john f. kennedy. he had
in deficits is caused by president obama over the last four years, and you support his policies that don't work. economy has stalled, more people unemployed than ever. the economy is not going where it needs to go so you're right, that's $16,000 of debt caused by president obama is what a strangling us today. >> you want a quick response? kind i guess amnesia is spreading all over the country. there were eight using a depressed obama and our debt when exponentially out of control. they were too unfounded wars, very expensive prescription benefit of you have chemistry your willingness to raise taxes. you want to do and county taxpayerscan you sign this pledge down to washington so this is how -- we need to look closely at trinity let's be clear. i've never called for privatizing medicare. i've never support anything in the ryan budget what you distort what i said. that's what you do, ms. hochul, you distort what people say to suit your own needs or your own purposes. what i said was the ryan budget did before enough to getting as a balanced budget the next 10 years. mitt romney agrees wit
. >> obama has had four years and really has not come up with anything to show the people that he did better than before, than the administration we had before, so i figure it is time for a change. >> if the majority of retirees share this view on election day, romney may take florida, an important part of winning the election. >> in a minute, we will look at unemployment in europe. >> first, other stories making headlines around the world. >> tensions are high in the tunisian capital after clashes between police and salafist muslims left italy will people dead. >> russia has launched a rocket from the steppes of kazakhstan, headed for the international space station. the rocket is carrying a spacecraft loaded with supplies including hardware, fuel, and water. >> following the resignation of former german president christian wulff, opposition leaders are calling for new rules on the president's salary. they say presidents should no longer be entitled to full salary for the rest of their lives if they leave office prematurely. >> eurozone economies are still struggling to pick up steam, and n
are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact is, the economy has not improved. we have averaged over 8% unemployment for the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. we have to continue to look for change, could change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again. we will address the tremendous debt this country has, $16 trillion in debt, increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of president obama, our national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is horrible to give to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. we cannot continue on with these policies. host: one more call for you from gwen, michigan, on the independent line. victoria, you're on with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: good morning. i wanted to make clarification for a caller from earlier about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. it is not being clear enough to our voters that there is a giant difference between a priva

, and then i went ahead and i voted for barack obama, but reluctantly. but then in the last couple of years, i really was kind of nervous about obama, and i just was like, ok, i wasn't really feeling him, and then i said, ok, karen, calm down, look at what's going on. and then i saw that, you know what, there has been change, and there has been promise. i can't ignore that and act like it came out of the blue sky. so i have to put my support behind this man and give him at least another four years to see where this is going, regardless of whether or not congress has his back or >> that is the kind of story of a warm and organizers heart. no matter what you think of the candidates, in is when that human interaction happens and people have a real conversation with voters and get them thinking answer was not even necessarily going to vote for obama and because of this contact with the campaign -- i think that is what policy should be about, people talking to each other and thinking about the issues in the way they relate to their own lives. at its best, this is not a mechanical process of compute

obama cast himself in the same bipartisan way that appealed to independent voters four years ago. >> over the last four years, the status quo in washington has fought us every step of the way. >> reporter: it would be unusual for a democratic president to actually suggest it would be okay with him if voters went for a congressional candidate other than a democrat. but, eager to paint himself as not part of the problem in washington, the president did just that at every stop. >> as long as i'm president, you know, i've said i will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. if you want to break the gridlock in congress, you'll vote for leaders who feel the same way whether they're democrat, republican or independent. >> reporter: president obama seemedized and confident today. he actually did a little jig at this last stop here in lima, ohio. obama campaign officials are talking up their early voting program, years in the making. with republicans more reliable election day voters, the argument goes, democrats have built up a bank of early votes, ones that make win
. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a warsmer michigan. >> the romney campaign is saying they're making major investment in ohio, time and money. are they making -- taking a gamble by making a bet on ohio, that if they lose, they will not have fought or invested a lot of money or time in michigan and pennsylvania, which they might win? are they making a long bet on ohio? >> well, i think they're probably making a correct bet on ohio. ohio is 18 electoral votes are
